Tasks planned for the day were Richard Roberts in his discuss to Crediton and back and for Steve Fletcher in his Cirrus for a 5 hour duration to complete his Silver C.
We had 6 visitors for trial flights but we had a small but effective crew to run the field with winch driving , cable retrieve and running the launch point.
We watched Steve Fletcher launch at 11.40 off for his duration flight, fingers crossed.
|Richard Hewitt was next in the air for his birthday voucher flight.|
Brothers Cameron, Charlie and Angus Hill were keeping track of who could stay in the air the longest. Well they all enjoyed 20 minutes in the air up to heights of 2700 feet and took an opportunity to take control of the aircraft, future pilots maybe?
So Richard achieved his Crediton and back trip, what of Steve Fletcher? Well at 17.11 he landed back at the airfield having achieved his 5 hour duration flight (5hr 31minutes actually) and final leg of his Silver C. Very well done the smile tells all.
|Looking pleased with his 5 hour+ flight - I think so|
